Lillian B. Kingsborough

April 15, 1925 — April 2, 2023

She was born April 15, 1925 in Greeley, CO to the late Jacob and Eva (Stricker) Betz. Lillian was the widow of Edgar L. Kingsborough who passed in 1989.

Lillian was a very hard worker all of her life and didn’t truly retire until the age of 88. She was formerly employed by Carlisle Paper Box Company, G.S.

She was a member of the First United Methodist Church. Lillian was involved with numerous charitable organizations and often volunteered to go door to door collecting donations for their causes.

She is survived by her two loving daughters, Donna Kay Shultz of Dover, PA and Leslie Ann Barkley of Carlisle; two sisters, Katherine Clelan of Newville and Alice Roy of Arizona; three grandsons, Steven (wife Angela) Shultz of York, Michael Shultz (fiancé Jessica Sykes) of Ames, IA, and Kendall Barkley of Carlisle; five great-grandchildren; and many nieces and nephews. In addition to her parents and her husband, Lillian was preceded in death by seven siblings, Helen, Dorothy, Donald, Jacob Jr., Elmer, Raymond, and Harry.
